If better skin care is one of your 2006 New Year resolutions, check out the Feb. issue of Real Simple. That magazine has a great article on frugal, but effective skin creams for $15 or less.
The piece is called "More Balm for you Buck," by Sue Chung.
Here'a rundown of the some of the top picks from Real Simple. In this post, I'll just target the selections for "Super Dry" or "Mature Skin." Later this week, I'll feature products for other skin types.
(For Super Dry, Aging Skin)
For the face:
Pond's Mend & Defend $9 (with grapeseed extracts and SPF15 protection)
Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 (lightweight cream and a favorite of some dermatologists) $10
